I'm pretty sure that "10 to 20 dollars" is the extra to get rockbox
installed, not the price at Amazon. example: 4gb Fuze $76 at
talkingmp3players vs around $52 (depending on the vendor) at Amazon.

E series: generally not available, listed as out of stock at
talkingmp3players. Potentially will last longer than a Fuze since it
has a replaceable battery.
